Wicked Sharp Relief Drive to Help Hurricane Sandy Victims in NY & NJ
You can drop off supplies such as diapers, formula, socks, hats, jackets and more at Wicked Sharp this weekend at 1898 Centre Street in West Roxbury.
The owners of Wicked Sharp Ski & Sports are continuing their ways of helping others by running a relief drive to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy in New York and New Jersey.
And with New York and New Jersey already getting snow, cold weather items are needed. Residents can drop off items (listed below) to Wicked Sharp at 1898 Centre Street this weekend.
"We have decided to do a relief drive for New Jersey and New York residents affected by Hurricane Sandy. After seeing so many people living in their cars because there is nowhere else for them to go, we started thinking that we as a community could make a difference. We will have Wicked Sharp as the drop off point," said JP Bedard of Wicked Sharp.
Wicked Sharp has been in touch with the Red Cross to make arrangements for pick up of the donations. The Irish Social Club of Boston has agreed to store the donated items until they are picked up and brought to New York and New Jersey.
The items being asked for are as follows, but not limited to: Diapers, formula, baby wipes, bottled water, gloves, socks, thermal underwea, hats, jackets, sweatshirts, sweatpants, hand warmers, toiletries, baby bottles, and snacks like granola bars/fruit snacks.
Added Bedard, "We think if we all get involved with this we can make a difference."
